Barcelona welcomes Inter Milan at the Camp Nou in another great European derby
Barcelona welcomes Inter Milan at the Camp Nou in another great European derby in the Champions League. We are going to discuss this fixture from Group F in our Champions League predictions today.
Barcelona’s away form this season could be unconvincing, but at home the Catalans have won all of their games so far. Now Ernesto Valverde’s team is chasing a first win in the Champions League as well.
Two weeks ago Los Cules won a point during the visit to Borussia Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park and they can be happy about it. The big hero of the night was Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who saved a penalty kick from Marco Reus. In the same time Barca barely created any chances to score, which was worrying.
After winning their first away game for the season against Getafe, now Barca are possibly facing Inter Milan without their biggest star Lionel Messi. The Argentine genius is recovering from a thigh injury, so most likely Ernesto Valverde won’t risk him against the Italians.
Inter Milan are coming to the Camp Nou to fix their mistake from the first round. Everyone expected that the Nerazzurri will enjoy a big win at home against Slavia Praha, but they barely saved the point. Until the last minutes of the game Slavia were winning, before Nicolo Barella to score a late equalizer.
But there’s no doubt that Inter are looking like a brand new team since the arrival of Antonio Conte. He’s proving once again to be one of the best coaches in the world. At this moment Inter Milan are leaders in the Serie A, having won all of their six games so far. In this six games, the Nerazzurri have conceded just two goals.
Even without Messi, Barcelona still have a very good chance to win against Inter Milan, especially at the Camp Nou. But in our Champions League predictions we are going to advice you to pay respect to the Italians – they are a different deal this season.
